Irleand Sojourn Continued….

mecliffsIts hard to believe its been a week since we left for Ireland.  Andei and I started off in Dublin and areandeishootstrand now outside of Limerick near Shannon Airport.  After leaving a fantastic 2 days of hiking and biking around the Beara Peninsula we drove to a town called Bunratty.  This is a good central location for visiting the Cliffs of Moher, rugged and barren Burren and the famous ancient Dolmen.  It was rainy and foggy today as we drove up to the cliffs (see photos below) but worthwhile nonetheless.  There is so much history here in Ireland. Its such an ancient, magical place.  You can literally feel it as you walk across the rocky terrain or look out at the mountainous fog shrouded green landscape.  The sun is shining now that we returned from our drive to the coast and hopefully it will stay sunny for our visit to the Bunratty Castle and Theme Park tomorrow.  One more day here and then we head back to Dublin and prepare for our flights. I fly back to North Carolina and Andei is off to Rome to visit friends for a week before coming back home to start summer photos classes at Carteret Community College and a part-time hostess job at a local restaurant.  This will most likely be the last post until I get home.  Cheers!  Enjoy the photos!

    Enjoyed the pictures, fabulous landscapes & history,love the brogue and the music – I’m jealous. That beer looks so good. Was that some sun I saw? Say hello to Andei for us.

    (ps. I have noticed that the Guiness here in the States has gotten better, not as good, but a lot less bitter than it used to be)
